Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse - North Charleston
Jordana was excellent with her service. The array of choices was the best I've ever seen. The hostess upon entrance went above her job description when I mistakenly left my credit card inside. She found me outside as I was pulling away! What an exceptional experience with this restaurant! I will be back!!!
The atmosphere was awesome and the quality of the food was superb. Cowboy Brazilian has never let us down. My family and I visit the Charleston location once a month and we love it!
Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse is always show what your money is worth with a five star meal. Awesome serve during doing our dearing times.
Our service was terrible. I understand our waiter was new, but he needs more training. Never even offered us dessert. Super bummed because they have great desserts. Added the automatic gratuity since there were six of us, it’s a good thing he did because he was not worth the 18%. When an automatic gratuity is added of $600 worth of food and drink, you need to keep drinks full, check on the table throughout the time they’re there.
This has never happened to us at this establishment before.
Again, super bummed!
Great place to share with family and friends
Great place to eat. The food was wonderful and so was the service
We were on vacation and wanted to have a nice meal. This is the best buffet that I’ve ever been to. We didn’t really know what to expect but were very impressed. The food is fantastic and there’s so much to try
I was expecting a higher end experience for this price point. It was a buffet like Golden Corral, except they bring the meat to you. Everything was just okay. At this price, there are MUCH better options in Charleston!
The overall experience was good the food was delicious. I would recommend asking for salt and pepper at the beginning of your dining experience because they do not season a lot of the meat. I prefer seasoning on my food. the filet mignon wrapped in bacon and the lamb were my two favorite choices. We enjoyed the cold bar there were pieces of smoke salmon that were excellent. The men’s bathroom definitely could use some attending to it was in pretty rough shape. I hear the one downtown so much nicer I’ve tried that location next time.
Great place to easy to find lots of parking space,great service
The meats except for a couple, were tough and chewy. The service was very good. The self serve bars were great.
We were in Charleston for a vacation. We loved it. Great food and if you go early can’t beat the price.
I’ve been here twice and I have not been disappointed. The service is great and the food is so good. My favorite was the spicy steak and lamb.
Amazing! Very unique place to dine. Buffet offers your soups, salads, and sides... Table placard offers green/red sides where they offer you a huge variety of meats that individually come cut at the table per individual (green/serve, red/stop). All cuts of beef were absolutely juicy, perfectly cooked, flavorful and each cut from a different section. Bacon wrapped chicken was amazingly juicy and flavored just as the varieties of sausages. Truly a treat for anyone!!!!!
Loved it. The food was amazing and the service was great.
Amazing food. Quite spectacular. I’ve never tasted a steak so flavorful and juicy. Worth every penny.
One of our favorite places! We always save it for a truly special occasion, which we were celebrating last night, and everybody had a marvelous time! I'm thrilled that the buffet, which is the best I've ever seen, is back in force, and that we can help ourselves, instead of having a waitress bring us a selection (which was the case, because of Covid, the last time we were there). My son had the last word when he told me, "When I go to Cowboy, I don't eat till I'm full. I eat till I hate myself."
That was the case with all of us! The meats were unbelievable, and as always, the broiled pineapple with cinnamon was something we couldn't pass up. We'll be back, for sure!! Love this place!
Overall average was a busy day so couldn’t expect much
It was great, I was running late for my reservation but we still had our table and great service.
Overall meat quality was very good, some cuts were a little chewy and lacked flavor. Other meats had more .. excellent salad bar and good side bar. Wife had a drink that was very weak. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great place for a change of dining experience. If you leave hungry it's your own fault.
Sad they get a bad rating based on a server but that’s a good part of the experience, goes hand-in-hand. And reading other reviews I’m not alone. But make no mistake, food was top notch and frequency they come around with different meat nonstop. So 5 stars there!
Monday 26th, 7:45-Close: Server was Cynthia and even though they were 1/3 capacity, she was running around as if busy nonstop. So first mistake is rushing around fast everywhere like you’re trying to beat the clock when customers are trying to slow down, take it easy and enjoy themselves. Stop displaying how busy you are, you will NOT see that in any nice restaurant. Strike 1.
Now it’s a BUFFET and everyone knows you don’t tip the standard rate. So why they have 15, 20 and 25% amounts shown on receipt I’m not sure. Still, it’s an upper class place and the times I’ve been I had no problem tipping a “fair” amount on a $100 bill, what it costs for 2 people @ $42 each plus drinks/ tax. So I leave $12. That’s the most I’m going to tip when I’m serving myself and the only thing I’m tipping on is for them to clear the plates and occasional refill. I’m not going to tip more because their buffet is more expensive than the normal $20 cheap one. Server labor is exact same!
My point is since she knows this you would think she would go out of her way to give extra extra good service to entice a normal tip. And perhaps if she wouldn’t have been running around crazy fast she would’ve noticed she never ONCE cleared the many, many plates on our table, piled high with gloves until the end and I asked for the receipt. That’s a day late and a tip dollar short, considering it’s a buffet and the ONLY thing she really has to do to earn a tip is to clear the freaking plates!!!
Even when she brought me one refill and I moved the plates to the end of the table with my empty coke glass as a “hint hint” so she couldn’t miss it she STILL dropped the coke and ran off! So if I am serving myself and no one is clear
The meat was dry
Our waitress by far was the worst we ever experienced there. We are not used to having to flag her down for drinks. The four of them were more interested in chatting at the greeters station than paying attention to our needs. When we made the reservation, we did note it was out 35th anniversary . No one ever said one word. Drinks remained unfilled. There also was not the normal choices of food we are accustomed to. For what we pay. We expect better service.
Thanks for great service and everything from the bar and meat selections were outstanding! Fully satisfied!!
It's awesome will be going back
Very disappointed in the quality of food, salad var and hot bar. I had to ask for my drinks, I had a bug on my table. The manager comes over, squashed the bug and left. Saying nothing, I had several flies I had to fight with.
Was not sure what to expect as we’ed never eaten at a Brazilian steakhouse before. Was a wee bit trepidatious when I saw the buffet set-ups, but fear not! This was unlike any other buffet I’ve ever eaten at. The food and service were both amazing. Everything we tried, we loved. Best salad bar I’ve ever seen. Very clean, with many delicious choices. The hot sides were very yummy. And the different proteins brought by the Gauchos that we sampled were all extremely good. All the staff were attentive and welcoming. Restroom was clean. The background dining music was some lovely soothing Brazilian pop. Really appreciated the low volume level, which made it enjoyable, but not obtrusive. My only “complaint” is that it was not inexpensive. I’d love to dine there more often, but at nearly $150 for 2 of us (included alcohol and 1 dessert and the tip), we won’t be dining there except for special occasions. Maybe they offer coupons or early bird pricing! That would be nice. There were quite a few families with small children in tow...they must offer some decent price breaks for kids, or I don’t see how it could be affordable at all.
It was great I will be going back
Staff made the night a great experience. The food bar it self has taking a turn for the worst. The main attraction of the Brazilian (steak) house was mediocre at best.. Brisket was very dry, rest of the beef was ok. Plus the cost when up quality went down.
Go there for the met, not the sides. The meat was exceptional, sides were terrible.
We went on a groupon deal. Would not go without the coupon due to the expense of the food. Overall, the food was good, but make sure you go hungry. It is a lot of food.
First time at a Brazilian Steakhouse and we were not disappointed! We were early for our reservation and immediately seated. The staff were genuinely friendly and made us feel very comfortable. To say the food was outstanding is an UNDERSTATEMENT! Everything was cooked to perfection. The only thing that would improve this restaurant would be a nap room!! We will be back!!
Not great service. Waitress was not very friendly and barely ever stopped by. Much of the meat was very, very rare. The Parmesan chicken was very dry. Salad items were OK but not great. Beans were cold. Despite having a nearly empty restaurant, everyone was squeezed together without appropriate spacing, especially during COVID. Overall, I’ve eaten at better for less $ and definitely not a great Brazilian steakhouse.
There is no system with bringing food to the table. You basically have to ask for everything or you won’t get it. We missed out on so many meats due to everything being finished before it reached our table and they didn’t start where they left off.
Food was subpar for the price and the ambiance was not like other Brazilian Steakhouses
Was charged an 18% automatic gratuity what was not advertised anywhere and was not told about it. What made it worse was that the service did not earn the tip. The waitress only refilled our drinks once and only after we had to flag her down because all the drinks where empty. Plates built up on the table without being taken, again because she never came by. Additionally the meat servers where often asked for an item but since there was another large table by ours which always was served first by the time they came the item was very limited or gone entirely. Not only did they charge that automatic gratuity but then showed an extra gratuity on the bottom which was calculated including the tax and automatic gratuity... I think not!!! Have been a few time to give them a second chance but the pore service seems to be a constant. I would recommend spending your money else where.
If you prefer your meat more on the medium to rare side then definitely go somewhere else as the base temperature is aways on the medium to well done side.
Great place, the only take a way is the sangria drinks suck.
The restaurant was mostly empty, never more than 3-4 tables at a time while we were there. The staff and service was fantastic; they were very attentive and friendly without being over the top. The only down side was the meat itself. Several of the pieces, including the house special sirloin and the flank steak were simply divine, but several of the other selections, such as the parmesan chicken, parmesan pork chop and the bacon-wrapped chicken were surprisingly dry, and for me, inedible. Given the price of the meal, I would expect that to be a one-off, not about half of the meat I experienced. Unfortunately, next time we are looking for a special occasion, we'll try something else.
This is the 3rd time my wife and I have visited your restaurant and each time it has been great. This time we also had our daughter, son, daughter in law and grandson for our son's birthday and everyone enjoyed the meal. It is an experience to eat at your restaurant. You have plenty to choose from and the servers did a great job of offering us different meats to choose from. Again COWBOY BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE in North Charleston SC us well worth the trip. We will be back!
